K.B. Hoyle is an award-winning author, public speaker, creative writing instructor, and classical history teacher who uses her knowledge of the ancient and medieval worlds to pen speculative fiction for readers of all ages. A featured panel speaker at the 2013 Sydney Writer's Festival in Australia, K.B. has received high acclaim from readers and reviewers worldwide. Now, she is preparing to leave her teaching career to pursue her dream of full-time writing. In the midst of the unknown, she shares the peace God has given her about these next steps.
IF YOU ARE SENSING THAT IT’S TIME TO STEP OUT IN FAITH, THIS IS THE EPISODE FOR YOU.
In our conversation, K.B. talks honestly about her struggles as an award-winning author and the reality that even successful, published authors may not make enough to pay the bills. She shares the tensions that come into play as she prepares to give up her full-time job – and the security that comes with it – to pursue her dream of screenwriting.
I love how K.B.'s story encourages us to pay attention to our restlessness and where it intersects with our talents as possible cues that God is showing us a direction to walk in. Though her journey has been challenging, K.B. has learned that when she is willing to take action to follow God’s lead that He often provides beyond what she would have imagined. She'll communicate the sense of peace she has found in the midst of her pending career change, even though she cannot see what’s over the horizon.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged,
for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
